Information Architecture

This course is intended to provide a deeper understanding of Information Architecture than what is available in the basic TOGAF 9.1 Certification course. Exercises will enhance learning for the topic with hands-on experiences based on real-life examples.Part of the work in the Business Architecture domain identifies the common information, and the sources and flows of information the organization relies on to perform its operations. Work in Information Architecture focuses on the delivery of information required by business operations to accomplish the business functional mission. This flow of information through the different systems is managed by applications and infrastructure of the enterprise. Common stakeholder concerns regarding authenticity, availability, and security should also be addressed.A key to understanding Information Architecture is that information is not just raw data, but data in context. Understanding the value of that contextual data is even more critical to the proper management of the information.
Completion of TOGAF 9 Certification or EA with TOGAF and Navigate is an asset.
